On February 9th 1964, a young 11 year old Michael Weingart witnessed The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show and his life has never been the same. Just Jake has had a guitar in his hands ever since. He has been a performing musician in Chicago and the Midwest for the past 40 years. Aside from playing his guitar solo, he also has an acoustic duet and a four piece electric blues band that he performs with on a regular basis. Most of his influences are based in the blues having grown up in the greatest time for music, the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. His philosophy is "to play music until I take my last breath".
